Because skin and soft tissues lose their elasticity over time, the face will often begin to droop with age. Wrinkles, lines, and creases form, and the face loses volume. If you’ve ever wondered what a facelift can do for a person, a visit with a board certified facial plastic surgeon can help you see if this procedure will correct the negative effects of age.

The facelift is typically quite effective – your face can look tighter and younger for up to a full ten years after the procedure. Injectables like Botox and dermal fillers won’t last nearly as long.
